Hey ya'll, I've been reading this forum for a couple months but this is the first post I've made. I have had some successful forays onto the Neuse earlier this year, but as you all know...anywhere between Smithfield and Goldsboro there is a shortage of water to be found. My buddy and I (both students at NCState) are going to the Cape Fear this weekend, and I just wanted to know if the water conditions are going to be calm enough for a 14 foot john boat to survive. We haven't got much rain at all here in Raleigh (less than an inch) but I know that hasn't been so everywhere. I think we are going to put in at Fayetville or within 20 miles thereabouts. Haven't made a final decision yet. But yea, just wanted to have some verification that the water isn't going to be a disaster area for small crafts this weekend. Any help would be appreciated.
